What To Do To Learn Cultivation Of Your Mind

cultivation, crops, mind, motivation, books
I just need this stage to be seen,
We all need a pantomime to remind us what is real,
Hold my eye and know what it means,
Coz’ I’m out of my mind.
James Blunt had this to say in his song. ‘Out of my mind‘. Although, don’t get carried away by the image along with the title of this post. I’m not talking about farming or crop cultivation over here, though we can learn a lot from farming but more on that later.
How many times times in a day or a week do you feel as if your mind is getting sluggish, your thoughts retracting and depression setting in? How many times do you feel the lack of creativity, imagination and vibrancy in your work?
In our daily lives, we fail to realize the importance of our mind. We are unable to see that our minds are actually like a garden, a crop field and like a small infant. The mind needs constant nurturing and ample care for it to keep growing and function properly. As a farmer gives special care and attention to the crops which he grows in the fields, similarly, we must facilitate the cleansing and proper growth of our minds. Why should we take care of only our external appearances with  the use of expensive clothes, makeup, exercising and grooming, whatever happened to your inner self, your mind? Shouldn’t you be taking care of that as well? Constant and continuous negligence of the mind will lead to anxiety and constant depression which fails to go away with the passage of time. It would be correct to say that your body would turn into a Zombie.
Here are three ways to aid you in the cultivation of your mind:
  • Books

    It is a known fact that books aid in the development of mind and one’s overall personality. Books enables one to have a holistic view of the environment in which one lives in. They teach us how to respond to various emotional stimuli and make us aware of the social stigmas prevalent in the society. Sometimes, books can also be a source of fun and entertainment. However, after reading a book, the mind is exposed to a variety of situations and emotional events. Eventually, all of this helps the mind in becoming better prepared for the challenges of life. But not just any book would do, one needs to search for books which have the Wham Effect.
  • Observing Silence

    The power of silence is enormous and many people all over the world are awaking to the strength which this simple activity can give the mind and the body. Try sitting quietly for an hour and a half at your home, in the garden or any place where there won’t be any disturbance. Experience the peace and calm which silence brings to your mind and how it helps in clarifying your thoughts and your actions. Read about the Power Of Silence and what happens when you use silence.
  • The Urge To Learn

    By learning, I’m not talking about our studies or finishing college, that’s only a small part of your learning. I’m pointing towards the fact that one needs to learn from everything in one’s life. Learn from your mistakes, learn from your peers, learn from your family, learn new skills, learn new languages, learn to navigate through new cities and countries. Learn about everything which can be perceived through the five senses of the human body. That is the true way of living a complete and fulfilling life.

What are your thoughts about the cultivation of one’s mind? Apart from these points, what other ways can you suggest for achieving this? Your comments are welcome.
